Harmonicraft is the third full-length release from Miami’s bottom-heavy rock advocates, Torche. It is the follow up to their name making release, Meanderthal (2008), which was paid much worship by the sludge junkies of the time. Harmonicraft explores the tone the band is known for, and continues to make low end frequencies relevant for rock acts. Subwoofer required. READ MORE
Torche have released a video for their song “U.F.O.” off their new full length “Songs For Singles”. The video was directed by Andrew Cox and is definitely a nod to awesome monster movies. Torche is currently on tour with High On Fire in support of “Songs For Singles” which is hands down the rock album of the year. Enjoy!

After two years of waiting (im)patiently, today marks the release of Torche’s highly anticipated and already critically praised new album, Songs For Singles. The followup to 2008′s Meanderthal, Songs For Singles marks the next chapter in the band’s trajectory towards one big global bear hug.
To celebrate the release, both the band and the good folks at Hydra Head Records have chosen to give away not one but TWO new tracks off the new album, courtesy of your friends at Spin.com, and of all places, The Cartoon Network!
The Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim has launched a new compilation album, appropriately named Metal Swim, currently hosting a previously unreleased Torche track off Songs For Singles, entitled Arrowhead. And as previously mentioned, the Torche supporters at Spin.com have also been kind enough to host the new track Out Again, which you can grab off the front page of their website.
Finally, as if all of this wasn’t enough to make your Tuesday about 90% better than it might’ve been, Torche has announced another in-store performance in addition to today’s appearance at Park Ave CDs in Orlando, this time taking place on September 28th at Vacation Vinyl (Hydra Head’s Sunset Junction vinyl shop!) in Los Angeles, following their headlining show the night before at the Bootleg Theater, and officially kicking off their US tour w/ High On Fire and Kylesa. Positive vibes abound! We can’t wait!
Fresh off of a massive U.S. tour with Coheed and Cambria, Torche is again touring the States! (well a portion of them at least)… Difference is, this time they are touring in pre-support of a new CD/LP Songs for Singles, which is not a collection of previously released tracks… S.F.S. is a CD/LP entirely comprised of new material!
